One of my favorite things ever is old white embossed china. I look for it all the time. I usually find it only one piece at a time here and there in a forlorn pile somewhere. The older the better. I love it in all shades. I was lucky enough to find a few dinner plates in a nice shop recently. These are Rose Point by Pope Gosser. So soulful. I was happy to pay a real price for them since they hardly ever show up in good enough condition in sets. ($10.00 each.) As it is, these also have a few minor dings.
Even white comes in the hues of the season. Luscious ivory's and creams have a warmth that matches the moods of fall.
I was also excited to find this gorgeous victorian lace top on my recent travels. It was the only thing that came home with me.
I would be content just to enjoy it on a hanger, but it will be a good fit for the little girls when they visit and play dress up. I love every sumptuous detail! It looks like Irish lace to me. What do you think?
One of the cozy nursery bears is modeling a darling pinafore I found in an out of the way thrift shop for four dollars. Vintage doll clothes in white are another item I always have my radar set for. There are closeup details of it further on in this post.
I have shown this vintage gown on the blog before. Don't you love pretty eyelet hems?
The bears love dressing up too!
Crepey dried white roses have such romance, and seem to sigh of a season now past. . .
. . . as autumn light plays with us at the windows.
Are you warming up to the romance of fall too?
We're off for a walk in the woods this afternoon!
I hope your day is lovely too. . .
